Later, the elves use a pair of zeppelins to carry the big bag of presents to the center. However, the Conductor notices that the bag is very close to the star on top of the big tree, so he calls out to the elves to increase their altitude and a few of the elves jump off, increasing the altitude of the zeppelins. However, the bag still hits the star, causing it to fall off, but some more of the elves, with bungee cords, jump off and grab it before it landed, then put it back on the tree.
The bag is soon landed on Santa's sleigh and four of the elves come to rescue the children while also saying that they knew they were there the whole time.
The best books for elves – I mean children
Initially, Billy was hesitant to let go of his presents until one of the elves assures him the present will be in good hands. When Santa shows up, the elves begin cheering, blocking Hero Boy's view while trying to see Santa. They cheer again when Hero Boy is chosen as the one to receive the first gift of Christmas, then carry him to the sleigh and cheer again when Santa declares the silver bell the first gift. They cheer one more time while also throwing their hats into the air after Santa leaves the North Pole to deliver the presents and celebrate.
One of them sings " Rockin' on Top of the World " and the rest of the elves dance with many of them waltzing. Meanwhile, four of the elves get a handcar and use it to re-couple the observation car to the rest of the train, then fall down in exhaustion.

Some elves, such as those depicted in J. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, are slender, human-sized, and beautiful, with fine — almost angelic — features. Tolkien's characters were drawn largely from his research into Scandinavian folklore, and therefore it's not surprising that his elves might be tall and blond.
Though not immortal, these elves were said to live hundreds of years. They have also become a staple of modern fantasy fiction. Gary Gygax, co-creator of the seminal role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons, was not only influenced by Tolkien's elves but also instrumental in popularizing them, even including elves as one of the character races along with humans that gamers could play.
